We've had our 24' above ground pool for about 15 years now, and I decided I'm finished with all the work it takes to maintain one. I had already pumped it down to about 4" deep, so about an hour ago I started wrecking it. Good thing I took it down anyway, as the base ring was just about rusted away, and rusted bad around the skimmer attachment point. I will be glad not to have to mess with this thing any more. Still kinda sad to see it go due to memories of the kids having so much fun over the years in it, but they're grown & the pool hardly ever got used.
Word of warning to anyone thinking about getting a pool.........DON'T!!!!!!!!!!!
